Nellie is a Founding CEO rockstar. She scaled MyCorporation.com to a BIG company and then sold it to Intuit in 2005. She was named a Top 100 Small Business Influencer by Small Business Trends in 2012 and 2013. And, she is a contributor to Entrepreneur, Forbes, Mashable and other media outlets and is a regular guest expert on the Fox Small Business Center sharing tips and tricks to start a business. She is entrepreneur royalty! 🙂
But, what really makes Nellie special in this candid interview is her honest conversation about the ups and downs of her personal shift from Founder to CEO. She’s a great example of a Founder who truly understands her strengths and weaknesses as a CEO and who leverages her team and business partner/husband to augment the company’s success. Give a listen and let me know what you think.
